I saw Michael perform live for the very first time. It was my first road trip to CT. We saw him at Woolsey Hall, at Yale University performing with Orchestra New England. He came down the center aisle singing When A Man Loves A Woman. We had balcony seats and we could look over the balcony to see him enter the venue!!! Wow. That was the beginning of an amazing 16 year journey!!!
MB asked me how long it's been last month, he was curious I guess!!LOL
I am curious, when did you guys see MB perform live for the first time?
Thanks for letting me share.
I never did get to see Michael in Scranton nor have I been to a cancelled concert but wow! The experiences we all go through to see the babe & I'm lovin' it that's for sure. I saw Michael 5/23/94 in Columbia SC this time. Once again, I went to visit my friend Leeta & her friend Ruby&saw other friends as well. I went to a softball game&concert & didn't know a soul. I flew to see Leeta & while doing so, I had to transfer in Lexington, KY & met one of my tape pals Ann from Ohio. How awesome was that but the, I went to leeta's. Monday, I took a cab to & from the soft ball game & had a blast. People were cool describing things to me but in listening to what the comentator (if there's such a word) describe the scores & such, the folks couldn't believe how I kept track of the score. At the end, I was waiting for my cab, & the director of the stadium gave me a soft ball; an autographed one. How awesome is that. Took the cab to get my friends Leeta&Ruby& came home. Hilda took me to the show but she said, " You're obssessed." I said, "Hilda, there's cabs out there. You don't have to take me." She took me & I took a cab back. Well, once again, that babe was awesome. The best part was when he did the little bit of nesum Doram (Pardon spelling). I screamed my lungs out. Completely made me cry. Wow! I'm hooked. What an addiction to be boltonizing. :) Boltonut from L. A. Ca That was the last time I was able to see Leeta.

OMG Kathy. About that concert 9/3/93. I almost went & it is a good thinkg I didn't as I went to Columbia SC to see MB 9/5/93--my 2nd concert. Isn't it strange how things work out? I tell ya. That man above was watching, I'd say. :) Well, Right off hand, I forget where Michael was 9/5/93 but he was in SC&I went with my friend Ruby's daughter Mary. I was visiting one of my pen/tape pals, Leeta in Columbia & celebrated a mile stone of a birthday of Leeta's but Mary & I went & was it raining big time or what 9/5/93. It was but they said the concert was on rain or shine. Mary drove up. I was her navagator (not) and Michael's show, once again, was awesome and he do to love somebody. Woo Hoo but I didn't have to leave at the end of a show. Sure, our seats weren't all that but he was, once again, totally awesome.You BB'S are bringing back memories plentiful. :) Boltonnut from L.
